You might consider making a replaceable tin liner for the barrel that is wired to the anode. Gives you lots of surface area.

I took them out yesterday and most of the paint came off. I decided to just wire wheel it the rest of the way. They came bare and then I remember what Daniel Sid about flash rust in his article. They started to golden and I didn't have any primer or paint so I found the only orange paint I had and painted it enough just to keep from rusting more. I am going to get better paint later.

I got two rattle cans of AC orange last night. It was all they had. It should be enough to get the wheels and some other little parts done, maybe enough to do the tongue as well.

I ordered those tires the other day. They were out of stock so it will take longer then normal. They are supposed to arrive the week of the 25th.

I know I did wrong. :mecry: After posting I went right out and took that pic! The other orange part is the tongue, it still needs another coat.

Do you remember me thread "Some Weekend Work" a few weeks ago? Those wheels had the turfs on them that were on the 312. I have the ATV tires on the WH now but the wheels they are on are yellow and a little too narrow for the tires. I am waiting for the valves to get here so I can mount them. The valves are coming with the tires for the trailer, some time next week.
